This is how it goes for me every year, being on the losing team, I don't know why. And I just added 5 million ppd yesterday, and look what happens .
I'll be heading to microcenter every day next week looking for video cards. If I can snag something, I will hopefully be able to more than double my output for the tail end of the race.

Well, I snagged one of those walmart 3600x's for $199, due next Tuesday. I plan to use it just to flash my 5950x X570 motherboards, then it will sit in one, until I get the second 5950x.

Then it will be for sale...PM me if interested (will be possibly months)

Well I added my HD 7870 XT for another 200k ppd, lol.

Don't think it's worth adding my i7 for 50-60k ppd and another ~85w.
How many ppd would my Ryzen 3600 add?

A 2700x is worth around 150,000 if I remember correctly. Probably the same ballpark for a 3600.

MarkFW, I guess you weren't kidding about adding 5Mil PPD. Time to switch over my mining server to F@H. (Would have done it yesterday, but it's currently somewhat "headless".)

Ok, done. I've only got a few more "gun turrets" on my "battlestation" to convert over, then I'm out of ideas, Gang.

Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays to everyone.
Is it too late to join the party? I'm bringing my old RX570 with me.
Sure, start crunching! I think biodoc should put you into the Moonshot gang, Mark's not nervous enough, haha. If you haven't noticed, it's very close! I've had to pull a bit of capacity to try to deal with a Formula BOINC deathmatch we are engaged in with pretty much every team in league with TSBT. Looks like its going to be a "photo finish" here, and perhaps in Formula BOINC for 3rd place in League 1.
